A Message from our Board

Dallas Bergen, Artistic Director of Vox Choirs and Conductor of Univox, has announced that he will be stepping down from his role following the 2020-2021 season, at the conclusion of our 16th season together.

In 2005, upon arriving in Toronto, Dallas was inspired to start a choir for young adults focused upon community-building through artistic expression. Fueled by his experience and understanding that a choral community can foster profoundly meaningful life experiences and lasting friendships, he founded Univox. Univox flourished under his passionate and nurturing leadership, and grew to an ensemble of eighty singers. In 2014, to meet the demand of a lengthy waitlist, Florivox was founded as Univox’ treble-voice sibling choir. The choirs now form Vox Choirs, a community arts organization of non-auditioned choirs committed to musical excellence, social responsibility, and relationship building.

 

Over the last 14 years, Vox Choirs has become known for its strong community among its members, supported by annual singer retreats and concert tours, and for producing exceptional concerts in collaboration with diverse artists in Toronto and around the world.

 

Vox Choirs is grateful to Dallas for instilling his spirit and joy in our choristers, inspiring us to grow as musicians, and showing us the transformative power of artistic community through singing. We look forward to our final two seasons together, and wish Dallas well as he explores new horizons.
